I do wish I had found it earlier though, which is why the Alo Gives initiative resonates with me so much. They have launched a free educational platform in collaboration with Scholastic which guides you to doing yoga with your children, with the goal of encouraging them to start as early as possible. Yoga, breathing and mindfulness activities can help children to quiet their minds, find calm when challenged, mute negativity and increase focus.
The site has 12 weeks of classes; each session is no longer than 5 minutes and can be done anywhere without the need for anything else.
So, if you are looking for some calm and energy to focus, start with some yoga. If you can’t step out for a class, you can do a class from the comfort of your home with Alo Moves. Sometimes you need to start with yourself, before you find your ‘something’.
